NET is a precise and effective tool for locating and releasing patterns of unresolved stress in the body. Many of my patients report that NET sessions have been beneficial in resolving physical conditions and in helping to identify and release causes of emotional stress.During this introductory workshop, we will look at how the body is naturally designed to deal with stress, what happens when the system gets overwhelmed and ways in which patterns of unresolved stress can be located and released. In addition to the presentation, a demonstration of NET will be offered to attendees and a self-care protocol will be given for use at home.

It’s no secret that prenatal yoga can be one of the best forms of exercise for mamas-to-be. Prenatal yoga can help pave the road for a more joyous pregnancy, a more confident labor & delivery and a better postpartum recovery. Join mom and certified yoga instructor, Cara Costello (RYT 200), every Sunday, starting March 22nd, for this 75 minute prenatal yoga class open to all levels.  Each week, we will open the floor to discussion so that future mamas can share stories, concerns & ideas about topics related to pregnancy. After our discussion, we’ll explore breathing techniques and gentle prenatal poses for women new to yoga and we will even touch on some sequences for more experienced practitioners. Each class will end with restorative postures, meditation and final relaxation. Come to connect with your baby, your body and other mamas-to-be; join us as we build a prenatal community.
